Who doesn’t love JoinedTheHerd at this point? Shelter is a very relaxing track with a gorgeous soundscape! The synth sets the tone perfectly with its bright chords, the flute keeps the sound light and pretty, the acoustic drums give the atmosphere a trace of nature and rhythm, and finally Stellar Eclipse‘s vocals come in with a soft, calming message. Everything in this track is well-designed and flawlessly executed – which is part of what makes JoinedTheHerd such a talented producer!
Frozen Night has always excelled when it comes to atmospheric pieces and soundscape design. Winter Dream was written for an action-adventure story game to introduce the player into a post-apocalyptic world. The sound design is beautifully arranged and full, while evoking such vivid emptiness with its sounds of distant high voices, light bells, and atmospheric synths – a testament to the tremendous skill of Frozen Night!
Better late than never! As to be expected with PP releases, viewer discretion may be advised.
HO! HO! HO! It’s that (late) time of the year (basically, Christmas ends on the 6th of January, but anyways), and Pinkamena Party delight us with a new album! Taking the concept of “destroying the birth of Jesus” the Crew created, for me, one of the best Christmas related PP album ever! With the likes of yours truly, Dynamite Grizzly, Schatz, Kakofonous A. Dischord, Supersaw Hoover, r_chase, CopyCat, mycutiemarkisagun and some new faces like Koron Korak with an almost 6 minutes dark ambient track, Drixale and Minty Love. We also have the return of Oyama (PeKaNo), and PERNE (Pernegyre).
All for destroying christmas as we know it, and all for amazing charities!
Download the album at Pinkamena Party’s bandcamp!

Be ready for what may be BlueBrony’s magnum opus. This deep track centered around a certain part of Tempest Shadow/Fizzlepop Berrytwist’s story and character depth is showcasing a divine musical vision and talent that takes us through an incredible progression of musical atmospheres, soundscapes, melodies, and instruments that all create such a powerful emotion as it unfolds. An otherworldly experience for the soul, this masterpiece is another proof that music is magic. And the icing on the cake, it’s also reflecting a personal meaning from the musician! You can read about it as well as the lovely story behind this track in the description.
An undiscovered OST track from the fanmade pony game Ambient.White, Nature’s Frozen Embrace lives up to both the name of the game and the name of Frozen Night, with a delightful Ambient atmosphere that seems to depict a snowy landscape to explore or a mystical place frozen in time where some fateful event happened… or would happen as you visit it in the game.
Created for the popular Pony Town’s Halloween update, Wandering Artist really delivers a fantastic tune with a spooky but whimsical atmosphere. It’s incredibly easy to imagine this in a video game, especially during a night or a graveyard level, and the use of background ambiance, as well as sparse strings is top-notch on this tune!
Available for download on Wandering Artist’s Bandcamp.
Falling in Sky has always been a great song and bank pain does an excellent job here giving it a breathe of air. Breaking away from the original’s epic and energetic chord structure and instead going with a more laid back and flowing melting pot of harmonies, bank really brings forward the feeling of ‘falling in the sky’ in a new light and is a soothing take on the original.
Beginning production in the community relatively recently, FilledSilhoutte’s eerie new EP is quite the intriguing experiment with soundscapes. The majority of it has some awesome experimentation with ambience and sound design, especially on the dystopic Hysteria. What exactly the “New Form” is is up to the listener, but, needless to say, it is beyond sinister. My personal favorite is the noisy, percussive Overthrown, which is chaotic and has a deceptively simple backing trap-inspired beat. I am beyond interested to hear more conceptual albums from FilledSilhoutte in the future, and you should be, too.
It’s so good to get a contribution to noise.horse‘s compilation album More Music for the Headless Horse from Cynifree, who nailed the theme and mood so well with an experimental track about the many mysteries of the Everfree Forest! This musical journey takes us through the narrows paths and spooky places of the forest, with a deep bass reflecting the unsettling atmosphere, and Nightmare Night-like melodies for a full immersion! Gotta love initiatives like these so much.
